Our Story

Welcome to Epic Dance Studios, home of Concord Dance Club, a non-profit dance education program committed to providing Michiana students with life skills through the medium of dance, while offering age appropriate instruction, performance, workshop and learning opportunities.

Under the direction of Stephanie Pairitz, Concord Dance Club was founded in 2010 to provide quality instruction in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and contemporary dance. In 2017, Epic Dance Studios was founded in response to the influx of dance students!
